Flash renderer won't work

I couldn’t find the proper topic to this, so I opened a new one.
What’s going on, when the flash renderer doesn’t work at all?
I tried it with my own files(exported from flash 8) as well as the help-patch on the flash renderer, which refers to the flash file in the help/resources folder. It simply won’t display anything (the bars in the help -swf should pop up and down according to the passed values) nor can I get or set variables in the swf (I/OBox(String)is empty after tryin to get the value of some existing vars in the swf, even so the I/OBox of the properly set up help patch). Besides I can’t change the background color of the renderer window (apparently I can do this on the respective input-pin of the renderer, but the bg-color in the renderer-window doesn’t change).
Why oh why?

maybe there is a problem with you installation of flash. you need to have the latest flash version installed. i just tested, it works for me.

open a renderer (tty) before you opene the flashrenderers helppatch and see if there is an error message…

Sorry, for the delay. I was busied elseway.
Well I have a proper installation of flash 8 and it’s player. Isn’t that good enough?
However, this is what TTY says after opening the flash renderer’s helppatch:

So is it about my player version?

hm. sory. no further idea. the errors above only seem to concern your audioinput. but no error about the flashrenderer. can you try the helppatch on a different pc?
